Does epoxy bond wood to metal?

If you're gluing metal to wood, it's a good idea to slightly roughen the metal before applying the epoxy. To apply the epoxy, we use a disposable glue brush. The secret to a good bond is to apply the epoxy to both surfaces. Once the epoxy has cured it's difficult to remove -- and it's tough on your tools.

Bottom Line: Cyanoacrylates are good for projects involving: wood, metal, ceramic, leather, glass, and some plastic where bond line is very tight. Hot glue: Hot glue can be used on porous and non-porous surfaces. Because of its high viscosity, it can bond uneven surfaces together and is great at filling gaps.
